Walmart already has a long list of workers vying for the title of “worst employee,” but it’s a thief posing as an employee at the big box store that might take the cake: walking in the door, grabbing four big screen TVs and simply walking back out the way he came.

Police near Dallas are asking for the public’s help in finding the brazen thief who stole four Samsung televisions from a Walmart store last month, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Authorities say the man, wearing a vest and employee badge, walked straight to the store’s stockroom, loaded up a hand truck with thousands of dollars worth of smart TVs and walked out the door to a waiting Nissan vehicle.

The fake employee perhaps wasn’t stealthy as he may have thought. A real employee of the store took notice of the large haul and followed the man outside. The worker was able to take down the plates of the Nissan getaway vehicle.

However, police say the information was a dead-end, as the plate number was connected to a Land Rover.

“He knows what he’s going after,” police Sgt. Robert Eberling said of the their. “He pretty much committed the identical offense” at another store the week prior.

Anyone with information about the fake Walmart employee can call the Grapevine Police Department at 817-410-3200.
